TJ Torrens Photography: Working with Small Businesses to create content for their Social Media Marketing, Apps, Websites and Advertising
The Raymonds have become quite the institution in Monkstown over the years. They are well known not only for their excellent quality meats, but also their warm personalities and their witty banter. As lockdown restrictions started to ease I photographed them as part of the local Keyworker Project: as a wee thank you for all that they were doing to keep open and support their more vulnerable customers.
Raymond Junior has now officially taken over the business and has putting lots of new ideas and products in place. I was delighted when Laura (known fondly on their social media as #thewife) contacted me to discuss their newest project: an app to enable their clients to easily send in orders online. Platform Media were building the App for them, but they needed images of each individual product they sell – sized appropriately to fit. We worked collaboratively, discussing what they were looking for. I suggested some visual design ideas, shot a sample for them and the ball rolled on from there.
It is amazing how exciting it can be styling a photoshoot for raw meat products! Here are some of the images that we created
